Before you start thinking that his “hobby” drives me nuts or something like that, let me just say that I’ve learned to laugh hysterically when he brings home more toys. We’re making progress. I no longer try to take retail revenge (I can’t keep up). This past year, Karl actually decided that it would be “O.K.” to throw away the toy packaging (this freed up a HUGE amount of space), and he drew the line at attending the Star Wars Celebration IV that is going on this weekend. He just couldn’t justify spending $1000 on a trip to a Star Wars convention. Amen? Yes, a big AMEN. He is, however, hosting his own 30th Anniversary Star Wars Movie Marathon on Monday, showing Episodes I, II, and III. Then, next month he will have another one for Episodes IV, V, and VI. I have a feeling most of us ladies will be in the kitchen, sipping coffee, wishing Karl would turn it down a little. It should be fun.
So, anyway, Karl was on his way home from Target when he was rear-ended at a red light. The impact from behind caused him to crash into the car in front of him. No one was injured and the driver-at-fault is insured! Yay! Here are some pictures:
Karl is a little sore, but feels much better than he expected to feel this morning.
Other news: The kittens reach the 6-week mark this weekend and I am working hard to transition them to being outside cats. They are just too frisky to stay inside and we have “lost” a couple of them. There are just too many places to hide. Kitty (the momma) is really getting on my nerves, waking me at all hours of the night. It’s like having an infant. “What do you want? Want to go out? Need water? Just want me to pet you?!” I can’t take it; I’ve gotten used to a full night’s sleep. My children sleep better than this cat. The kittens have started eating kitten chow, so we are getting MommaCat “fixed” next week. Here’s a picture of them checking out their new digs:
School news: I realized recently that in spite of all that we’ve learned from our time in the Bible this year, the kids have not memorized all the books in order. So, this week, the kids have worked on memorizing all 66 books of the Bible in order. Hannah has them all. Benjamin has most of the OT and all of the NT. Because Noah and Abbey have listened to H and B repeat them over and over again, they’ve learned a lot of them, too. Abbey’s pronunciations are just too cute! I wish you could hear her.
Oh, and Noah lost his first tooth! You can see his new smile in the sidebar.
I guess those are the biggest news stories coming out of our house this week. Have a great weekend!
